The peak experience in the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise

Viewing platform


From the highest viewing platform in Europe visitors can enjoy a unique Alpine view that knows no national boundaries. The 360° panorama opens up over 38 four-thousanders and 14 glaciers in France, Italy and Switzerland.

The panoramic boards on the platform help you to identify the various mountains and indicate how high they are. It’s impossible to get enough of this view, which takes in the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau in the north, the craggy north face of the Breithorn in the east, and Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe, in the west. And the Matterhorn too can be seen from a different perspective. The long-distance view is captivating and instils a quiet, reflective mood in many visitors.

A moment on this platform offers more than just a view into the distance – the powerful presence of the Alps is tangible, drawing you into a completely different world.

From this breathtaking perspective, the view is both uplifting and awe-inspiring. Every moment spent here is an opportunity to contemplate the beauty of nature in all its glory and linger in silent wonder.
